Research Director at the Independence Institute Dave Kopel talks to Cam Edwards about a recent court ruling in New Zealand lowering restrictions on one kind of semiautomatic firearms. Police had previously classified guns with a "military pattern, free-standing pistol grip" in the category of "military-style semiautomatics" (MSSAs), which are more heavily restricted, but the court ruled against this definition. Kopel also discusses the oral arguments in the US Supreme Court case McDonald v. Chicago, where Chicago failed to moderate its stance despite opportunities given by the justices to make a more defensible argument.
